The College ensures that students demonstrate mastery of developmental education and college-credit courses. This procedure provides guidelines for course enrollment guidelines students for both developmental education or college-credit courses.
- Students have three opportunities to complete a course successfully.
- The first two attempts will be assessed at the current cost for a course.
- For repeatable development courses, if students have successfully passed (no F or W) the first two attempts, they will be charged the current cost for a course for their third attempt.
- Further attempts will be assessed at 100% of the "full cost of instruction" for a course, which is defined as equivalent to the tuition and fees charged to non-Florida residents.
- For the purpose of determining when a student should be assessed the full cost of instruction in a course, courses attempted prior to the fall term of the 1997-98 academic year will not be considered.
- Students may request to waive the full cost of instruction due to extenuating circumstances or financial hardship by completing the Full Cost of Instruction Waiver Request. The form must be submitted to the Office of Enrollment Services and the Registrar will make a final decision on the request.
- Upon a third attempt of a course, the student is not permitted to withdraw and will receive a grade for the course.
- Students may also request a fourth attempt for a course due to major extenuating circumstances. Students must submit a Request for Fourth Attempt form to the Office of Enrollment Services and the Registrar will make a final decision on the request. If the request is approved, the grades from the third and fourth attempts will be calculated in the grade point average (GPA) and the full cost of instruction will not be waived, per state statute. This is the last opportunity to complete the course, and if the student should stop attending, a grade of “F” will be assigned.
